One of the most popular and widely used methods, implants are a good substitute for one or more missing teeth. Precisely, this is a surgical process where the implant is positioned in an aperture made in the jawbone that eventually, attaches to the bone and acts as a new "root" for the crown that will be replacing the missing tooth. A crown, also known as a cap is usually designed to look like a natural a natural tooth and attached to the implant.
This ultimately, fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth. It’s important to understand that for this procedure to be successful it is essential to have enough bone in the jaw that also is strong enough to hold and support the implant. However, unavailability of the same can be taken care by a bone augmentation. Also, natural teeth and supporting tissues near where the implant will be placed must be in good health.
A healthy beautiful smile is the most obvious benefits of orthodontics. Crooked and crowded teeth are harder to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that support the teeth, or misalignment of the jaws joints. Braces are used for proper positioning of tooth, and if required, the jaw bones, to accomplish maximum functional efficiency. Dental braces are the best dental treatment to correct crowded or crooked teeth.
In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for front teeth if you have any of the following:
Tooth whitening is one of the easiest and safest procedures in cosmetic dentistry. It is quick, easy, and painless procedure. It offers to patients with stained, discolored or yellowish teeth an opportunity to have a whiter, brighter smile. Whitening significantly reduces external surface stains affected by food and beverages. We provide an in-office light activated power bleaching system, which gives you instant brightening results just within 30 minutes.
Crown: Badly decayed or weakened teeth often require further treatment than normal fillings. Crowns or caps can strengthen such weakened teeth. A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over and entirely covers up the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
Bridge: When one or more teeth are missing in the oral cavity, the remaining natural teeth tend to shift out of their normal position. These shifted teeth are often more difficult to clean as a result they are more susceptible to decay or gum diseases. Shifting of teeth will lead to changes in the bite, which often put stress on the teeth, muscles and jaw. Ultimately, the ability to chew comfortably may be affected. A fixed bridge can restore your teeth to normal functioning by replacing missing teeth. That helps improve the entire health of your mouth by keeping the surrounding teeth in position, and can also help maintain the structure of your face and jaw.
In this era of cosmetic dentistry Crowns & Bridges made with Ceramic or Zirconia (Strongest) like tooth colored material, can be as pleasing aesthetically as they are functionally.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is needed when the blood & nerve supply of the tooth (called the 'pulp') is infected through decay or injury. You may or may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection. In some cases your tooth could darken in color, which may mean that the nerve of the tooth has died (or is dying). This would need RCT.It involves removing decayed tooth structure, pulp, dis-infecting root canals and filling & sealing root canals by specific materials.
After RCT, tooth lacks nutrition as its blood supply is removed and tooth becomes brittle. To prevent the break down of RCT treated tooth, Cap (Crown) is necessary in almost all the cases. At Shah’s Dental Serenity we bring to you the most contemporary age of dentistry which is absolutely painless Root Canal treatment facilitated with cutting edge technology with an emphasis on minimally invasive which preserves your teeth and maximizes your comfort.
Adults can have up to 32 teeth. The wisdom teeth are the last to appear, right at the back of the mouth. They usually appear when you are between 17 and 25, although sometimes they appear many years later. People often have jaws that are too small for all 32 teeth to fit - 28 is often the most we have room and also due to its arbitrary way of eruption there may not be enough space for the wisdom teeth to erupt properly, hence its removal is required.
People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of either acrylic or metal.
A 'complete' or 'full' denture is one, which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, while a 'partial' denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or 'precision attachments'.
Fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look. With the newer generation, latest materials available with its strength comparable to silver fillings and pure esthetic like natural teeth are proving to be very successful.

Shah’s Dental Serenity provides several treatments for children to avoid any future dental problems. One of them is application of a sealant, a clear or shaded plastic material, on the chewing surfaces of back teeth (premolars and molars), where four out of five cavities in children are found. Basically, this acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, thus protecting the decay-prone areas of the teeth.
This process is usually quick, non- invasive and takes only a few minutes. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned, prepared with a special solution and dried. The liquid sealant is then applied and allowed to set hard by shining a blue light onto it.
Sealants are a recommended and time tested deterrent for cavities in young children.
